Yes. Winter Fire. It makes sense. To me, at least.
I made this had as a commission for ~FiregaKatt
who wanted a slouchy hat for the winter. Get it? FIREga? Winter? Hat? See what I did thur??!!
I used some supah awesome wool (I Love This Wool Naturals from Hobby Lobby 100% wool) in a delicious tasty neutral color to create a hat she can wear forever with every outfit always.
I will cry if she doesn't.
This hat turned out to be a lovely melding of knitting and crocheting. Normally, I do this tricky brim for my slouchy hats where I half-double crochet in the back ridges alternating on short rows to create a pseudo-knit look. It's slightly time consuming, but it looks nice. I started that way for this hat. Then I went "WHOAWHOAWHOA, whatchya doin' silly girl?? You know how to knit now. So just KNIT THE BRIM instead of doing fake knitcrochetwhatevers that takes about 2x as long as knitting it would."
So I did. And cast off, and crocheted the rest of the hat. SO COOL. I know I am not the first person to do this. But...I am feeling puh-reetty snazzy.
So yeah! Want a hat of your own? Drop me a note! We can work something out.
